You can never go wrong in navy, it’s the next best neutral to black in our opinion. It’s also one of the most difficult colours to find out there in the retail world for some reason.

Colours aside, how to die for is that centre Chanel suit? Well you’ll be beyond after knowing that it is an original design from Mlle. Coco Chanel herself! That’s right folks, this beauty is a numbered couture peice dating from the 1960′s. The skirt has been altered into a mini (we know-so sacrilege) but it does make it much more contemporary and wearable. Most importantly,  the jacket is 100% original and stunning. It’s been awhile since we’ve had one of Mlle’s originals, but well worth the wait.

Our window also features a runway 1980′s Moschino necklace paired with a contemporary Louis Vuitton brocade, lace & tulle dress to the left. The matching LV jacket has been featured on the right mannequin overtop a silk bubble hem dress with corseted bodice. All clothing items are a size 4.

Back to black and we are super excited about the dress on the right…. She hails from the early 1960′s and is one of the first creations from the house of MISSONI!!! And, and, and it’s brand new with it’s original tags! (Totally geeked out over this peice when it arrived.) We feel so blessed that the vintage gods have rewarded us with one of their holy angels. We should also note the 1970′s Dior couture velvet jacket in the middle- lined in silk and serial numbered.

This is our anarchistic pattern mash-up of a window. Somehow we find fluidity to it- like mixing sweet with salty. Consider it the visual version of a sea salted caramel bon bon. Surprisingly delightful, isn’t it?

We realize this combo is a bit of a stretch, but we just had to put these beauties together in the window for you. We’ve entitled them “The Autumn Roses”. Lefty is a Ceil Chapman, Marilyn Monroe’s personal fav designer. She wore many of Chapman’s dresses for public appearances to show off her “assets”.  Iconic bombshell approved!
